Pacific Sun Phytoplankton Reactor
Micro-algae cultivation unit
The Phytoplankton Reactor is a simple system for producing plankton in a natural food chain. The products of the reaction are light, fertilizer, CO2 and the micro-algae itself. The micro-algae can be fed directly to various filter-feeding invertebrates, and especially to zooplankton. The growth rate of the micro-algae in the plankton light reactor is enormous. If the supply of light, CO2 and nutrients is continuous, the biomass of the algae will be 4 times the original size within 24 hours. Both freshwater and saltwater species of micro-algae can be cultivated.
The reactor cap has a vent allowing the reactor to breathe. The lower part of the reactor is equipped with a specially profiled cone to facilitate the collection of ready (mature) liquid as well as the removal of dead algae from the reactor chamber.
Reactor allows you to acquire about 30% volume per day.
The reactor uses a special kind of light to grow algae
Phytoplankton reactor lid includes three inputs which can be used for:
- Air supply – generate natural movement of water inside reactor (recommend a small pump with a capacity of 50-100l / min, not included)
- CO2 (carbon dioxide) input – natural “fertilizer” for phytoplankton
- Phytoplankton liquid output – connected to dosing station can feed your aquarium with plankton every day/night
- Fresh/saltwater input – for refilling reactor column with new water
Model: PR 70/150 medium size reactor
